The Environmental Farming Scheme (EFS) is a voluntary scheme that will support farmers and land managers throughout Northern Ireland to carry out environmentally beneficial farming practices on agricultural land.
The scheme aims to:
- Restore, preserve and enhance biodiversity;
- Improve water management and water quality;
- Reduce soil erosion and improve soil management;
- Foster carbon conservation and sequestration in agriculture;
- Reduce greenhouse gas and ammonia emissions from agriculture.
The EFS is made up of two levels, as detailed below.
EFS(W): a wider-level scheme aimed at delivering benefits across the wider countryside outside of environmentally-designated areas.
EFS(H): a higher-level scheme primarily aimed at site specific environmental improvements at strategically important sites and for priority habitats and species.
The higher level scheme includes payments for remedial management taken out on bogland, woodland, sand dunes and certain types of grassland. Agreements will have a five-year duration.
We have a full range of fencing products in stock, all which qualify for both schemes.
A supply and fit service is also available and with almost 40 years of professional supply and fit fencing experience, you can be assured the job will be completed to a high standard.
